The trail begins with the Slippery Rock Gorge Trail. 6.2 miles, blue blazes, moderate to difficult hiking. Slippery Rock Gorge Trail begins jointly with Hells Hollow Trail at the Hells Hollow parking lot. The Gorge Trail splits off just before the second footbridge. The first two miles of the trail follows the upper Hell Run Valley. The rest of the trail follows the Slippery Rock Creek Gorge north for just over four miles to Eckert Bridge. At about the 3.5-mile point, the trail descends into the deepest part of the gorge. This broad alluvial flood plain is known as Walnut Flats. The trail then becomes more difficult, traversing very steep terrain. At the 5-mile point, the trail crosses uplands then drops back down to creek level and follows along the creek bank to Eckert Bridge. Hikers then cross the Covered Bridge to pick up the Alpha Pass Trail. The road walk goes along Johnson Rd about 1 mile to Rt 19 and then along Burnside Rd about 1 mile to West Park Rd ( N 40 57.433 W 080 07.918) in Moraine State Park. Cross West Park Rd and follow the blue blazes along a dirt road a short distance until the trail drops down through the forest about a mile and crosses under the Rt 422 bridge, then goes about 1.7 miles along the shore of Lake Arthur past the dam and then over to McDanels Launch and trailhead . From the McDanels Launch parking area, hike along the crushed limestone Butterfly Trail to the Bike Rental trailhead at N 40 58.451 W 080 07.668. Bathrooms and a concession are available at the parking area. There is a kiosk with map/brochures and park information at the Glacier Ridge Trail (GRT) trailhead. Follow the single track trail along the woods and drop down to the Hidden River Bridge which crosses an arm of Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park. This bridge was built in 1998 by members of the Butler Outdoor Club, a NCT trail affiliate. The trail climbs and crosses the paved North Shore Bicycle Trail and goes on to cross North Shore Drive where there is a small parking area at N 40 58.482 W 080 07.331. The GRT then meanders through woodland about a mile to Camelot Rd which terminates just north of the trail at N 40 58.571 W 080 06.879. The trail travels along a ridge, drops down and crosses a bridge and meets a side trail to the Link Rd Shelters 1.4 miles away at N40 58.317 W 080 05.727. There are three adirondack style shelters, each with a picnic table and fire ring and a pit toilet a short distance away. The GRT climbs, travels along a ridge and drops down to Mt Union Rd trailhead about 1.5 miles away at N 40 58.025 W 080 04.806. The trail circles below a pond and comes to an intersection with a white blazed northern loop trail. Take the trail to the right to the most direct path to the Marina and Davis Hollow Cabin about .8 miles East.

Super easy trail. Nice for families or the elderly. But if you are more active and can get to rocker places so of the other trails have beautiful waterfalls on the other side of the park. Also there are stairs down to the waterfall.

Nice little trail. We did this as part of the Slippery Rock Gorge Trail. It was wet today and the rocks and stairs were a little slick. Nice quick hike.

The trail was well marked and the path was flat and well maintained. The bugs were thick so bring bug spray! Handrails and stairs to get down to the falls. We walked up the falls and creek to get back to the parking lot. Mostly shallow creek with one deeper area kiddos were jumping into. Lovely easy walk, beautiful scenery.

Scenic & well maintained. As a first time visitor, had some trouble finding the parking lot and Trailhead because the street sign for Shaffer Road was bent and not easily visible. Was able to find it though, and enjoyed a nice hike on well-maintained trail.

Very easy to walk, nice solid path and wood bridges/handrails over water. steps go down to the base of the falls and there is flat rocks (very slippery) that give a nice view. Was more impressed with the stream flowing through the rock than the falls themselves. Springfield falls are much nicer in my opinion. Very nice trail for kids or elderly.

Short hike, fantastic fall. We went in the middle of winter, wore spikes and used poles as the trail was very icy. We were able to get right down to the base of the falls. Terrific experience!

Another beautiful trail in the park. Easier hike than the alpha pass trail. Waterfall is a nice payoff at the end.

Very nice and well maintained trail! This is more of a nature walk than a hike. Go for parts of the gorge trail if you want more of a hike. It’s a nice calm walk through the woods with a few crossings of the creek that are manageable at low water. At the end of Hells Hollow there are some gorgeous falls which, once again, at low water are very easily accessible. We plan to head back after some rain to see the how quick the water moves and how full some of the narrows get!

I didn’t see a place to ask questions so I suppose I’ll use this... I’ve been on this trail a few times and all but once, the creek was mild and it was easy access to the waterfall. We’ve always stopped at the waterfall and turned around. I’ve seen people come from the other direction while at the falls. One time we went, the water was to high at the waterfall to cross at the bottom of the steps. Can anyone provide directions to come from the other side. I would love to see the waterfall when the water is high!
